“A Wide-Angle View of U.S.-Japan Relations: Religion, Energy, and Domestic Politics”
Date and Time
Monday, December 10, 2012 1:00pm-3:00pm
This seminar would like to examine the significances and implications of the Middle East for U.S.-Japan relationship. In particular, we would like to focus on three factors: religion, energy, and domestic politics. Religious factors for the U.S.-Japan security alliance may be overlooked by many of the Japanese and probably the Americans too, but, we believe it is more and more important in the 21st century. Energy issues are now very sensitive in the post 3.11 Japan. And, both Japanese and American domestic politics are now so fragile. Furthermore, we will examine possibilities and necessities of multidisciplinary studies for U.S.-Japan relationship in future.
